Excerpt from Fusion Art’s: 4th Annual Figures & FacesArt Exhibition

Welcome to Fusion Art’s 4th Annual Figures & Faces International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of November 2018.

For this competition, both 2D and 3D artists were encouraged to share their best art and photography depicting the human form – both figures and faces. All artists, over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best figurative art and photography.

We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, South Korea, Barbados, Israel, Taiwan, India, Poland, Faroe Islands, Hong Kong, Germany, South Africa, Columbia, Denmark and Japan.

In this monthly themed exhibition Fusion Art presents awards in three categories: Traditional Art, Digital Art & Photography and 3-Dimensional Art. The Figures & Faces Best in Show winners are Brian McClear for his oil on canvas, “Cheryl”, Barbara Mierau-Klein for her digital art, “Burning Fall” and David Tinsley for his driftwood, “Silent Sobs”. Brian, Barbara and David are Fusion Art’s Featured Artists for the month of November 2018 and, as the Best in Show winners, all three artists are invited to participate in Fusion Art’s 3rd Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in February 2019.
